The pair EUR / USD is trading today with a slight increase. Traders react positively to statements by US Secretary of Commerce Wilber Ross that the United States may refuse to impose 25 percent duties on European cars and parts. This is possible in case of successful negotiations with EU colleagues to be held this week. According to Bloomberg, the final decision on this issue will be made until November 14. Previously, the United States postponed the introduction of these duties for half a year. Many experts believe that the White House will do it again.
In addition to geopolitical news, today at the European trading session, investors will closely monitor the publication of October PMI data for the manufacturing sector in France, Germany and other Eurozone countries. Experts expect a slight increase in indicators, which may support the EUR / USD pair.
In the US today it is worth paying attention to the publication of data on industrial orders for September.
Also today, Kristin Lagarde is expected to make his first appearance as head of the ECB. The markets expect to see signals of ECB regarding how it will implement monetary policy. The exact time of her performance is still unknown.
